For this post I went with the off the record situation. When I did so I went with option B both times. I did so because that was the truthful way of doing things. The mayor out of all people should know by the time he gets elected that if he wants something off the record he should say so at the beginning, not at the end when if he says something wrong he could try to fix it by saying he wants it off the record at the end. Even I myself know that if I want something off the record I need t say so before I start talking, and that is without me having to be in journalism. It is my duty to talk over this with my boss that way we can see if the choice I was going with was the right way, even though it would do harm to the mayor.
